Monochrome Monday - 29th December

Another old photo - again of my mother - and I would imagine mid/late 1930's.

Rowing on a lake somewhere - possibly Platt Fields or Heaton Park in Manchester.

Seems closer to the Forties, Petrus.Something about that rakish hat.

Whenever, B&W is often timeless, it's a wonderful picture, Petrus. She illuminates with her smile.

I do enjoy these very personal images, as they are natural monochromes.

Imagine wearing a skirt while rowing! Times sure have changed!

Love that she is 'dressed up' to go rowing .. life was much more formal back then

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
